COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewing with fresh hops is a big endeavor, requiring four to five times the hop volume compared to using pelletized hops. Although the process is complex, it brings impressive results: Fresh Hop is an American-style pale ale with moderate hop bitterness marked by a unique and intensely grassy hop flavor and aroma. Fresh Hop is a superbly refreshing, medium bodied, light-copper colored pale ale weighing in at 55 IBUs and 6.1% ABV.

Charlie's redondo beach in tap. Pours nice, foamy head, stays with it. Dark golden color, caramel. Not much to aroma, a bit of pine. Easy drinking, nice on the palate. A good but not great beer. Would order it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Serving type: 22 oz bottle A: pours a copper orange color with a decent amount of head. Great lacing too! S: grassy and citrus notes, along with some pine. Smells really inviting as it should being a fresh hop ale. T: it is a very clean tasting beer, that finishes smooth. There is no resiny aftertaste. It has a pleasant fresh grass and citrus flavor profile, with a slight malt backbone. O: a very fresh tasting pale ale that I would buy again!

It pours orange with amber streaks and a coarse off-white foam. The aroma is grainy and bisquit sweet with a deep grassy, pine and grapefruit side. A truly warm and inviting aroma. In the mouth it starts with the same big bisquit sweetness, transitioning into an intense piney note that carries a firm stroke of bitterness that stands in stark contrast to the initial sweet impression. The sweetness and firm hop presense linger and play together in the mouth like chocolate and coffee.

Very grassy/vegetal smell, same on the taste. Slight citrus but mostly just very green vegetable hop taste. Idk if this got old quickly or what, but this was just not a very good fresh hop.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 Piney and very earthy hop flavors. Truly one of my favorites. It has become almost impossible to get in Iowa. A fantastic beer hands down! Great Divide Co. has continued to brew unbelievable world-class ales!

On tap @ProofBrewing. Mouthful was definitely grassy hop flavor, with a small sweet malt presence lingering in the background. Though it seems to pack the hop punch of a lighter IPA, the lacking bitterness makes it a great session beer. Those things combined separate it from the hoard of ordinary and boring mass of pale ales. Good stuff.

22 oz bottle. Golden amber in color. Smells of mown hay, lemon and fresh green herb. Nice, stiff ad clingy head. Medium body and velvet smooth, it has an intense bitter grapefruit, grain and gritty flavor. The finish is crisp with some of that silky resinous feel in the end. This BEER is very well balanced in the middle with a lot of hop flavor and a more than adequate mouthfeel and malt backbone. Best fresh hop I have had.

22oz bottle. Poured a beautiful copper with a nearly white lingering head. Aroma is fantastic, bursting with wet hops and fresh pine. Hops continue to dominate flavor, followed by a sweet citrus and bitter finish. Excellent pale ale for me.

Pours cloudy golden brown with lots of head. It has a good amount of grassy citrus pop to it. The bitterness is nice and it has a great balance. Very smooth, light and the finish is fantastic. Overall, an awesome pale ale.
